October Weddings

A lovely relaxed wedding at The Royal Wells in Tunbridge Wells with a book theme for the tables and 'vintage' pinks for the bride. Here are my snap shots, you will be able to spot the difference when I post the photographers!

And here they are courtesey of Sarah and Simon Wedding Photography, now you can see the book theme!

And the bride and groom

Later in the month saw us back at Finchcocks Oast, such a great venue for the smaller wedding as the whole place is yours to do what you will, within reason of course. Tamsin went for a fairy tale theme with tables inspired by Bramble Hedge, Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan.

We had a bouquet to do for the daughter of a regular customer who had an intimate wedding at the end of October with lovely Grand Prix roses, Brunia, Dennis Bowden mimosa and lisianthus. 

Another month ends but still more next month.

September Weddings

The beginning of the month saw a homespun wedding with soft pastels including astilbe, stocks, roses and gyp.

And then a 'meadow' inspired wedding with a hint of Scotland. Alice and Ewan have been beautifully photographed by Jacqui of Jacqui McSweeny Photography based in Brighton:

Following on was another blue based wedding with blue hydrangeas , thistle, lavender, veronica and ivory roses, not forgetting the cabbages in the table arrangements! All this in the lovely setting of Swallows Oast.

Back to The George in Rye for Maddies cream and green wedding with bridesmaids dresses in 'limeade' - such a apt description. Here are some photo's I took and I'll post the professionals in a round up post.

August Weddings

We started off with two purple weddings, one at The Royal Wells Hotel and the other at Mountains Country House in a marquee. The latter wanted impact and went for large martini vases.

Blue has been very popular this year as have hydrangeas with the next two weddings featuring both. The first we provided Church and bridal flowers.

The other was the whole chabang at the lovely George in Rye and my everything looks picture perfect!

We then saw creams and whites back at the Royal Wells with roses playing a key role.

This was a busy month with us then providing all flowers for a wedding at Blackstock Barn. This time it was soft peaches, with a hint of burnt oranges and 'silver' vases.

And the brides bouquet had David Austin and avalanche roses with astilbe, stocks, lisi and the wounderful 'green bell' 

We were then back to The George for a nice country pastel mix.

We finished up with another blue themed wedding in a Church and then marquee, here are Sarah and Dan:

And a vase in the marquee:

So that was a taste of August, I say taste as we had more weddings but I either forgot to take pictures (a common error on my part) or I have not got any professional shots from the bride or photographer but will post as and when!

And so on to September.

June & July Weddings

Sitting on a chilly Novemeber day it is nice to think back to summer when the days were warm and long and the weddings a plenty! June & July are always a popular months but doing this excercise has made me realise two things, that I am very bad at taking photo's of our weddings so it is always so nice when we get sent the official ones which are of such superior quality to mine and that it is much better to write posts at the time. I feel a new years resolution coming on! However I do have some pics of a few: A beached themed wedding at the De La Warr in Bexhill called for green and blue hydrangeas:

Sweet peas were popular this year with numerous jam jars bursting with mixed colours to compliment the beautiful gardens at Wadhurst Castle.

They were also used for a summer party.
July saw us back at Wadhurst Castle with a real floral delight as the bride had made table matts out of different fabrics, the groom had a lovely flowery tie & there was lots of bunting.

Birdcages still like to show an appearance

And jars of mixed flowers for any summer event always hit the spot!

And hows this for a vibrant bouquet we did for a homespun village wedding.
Another wedding, again with jam jars but the prettiest, with such attention to detail I have ever had the pleasure to fill. And we had the most wonderful thank you from Sam & Christina that is on our website. I have decided to wait for the official photo's to do them justice so will post the images shortly. And so on to August.

May Weddings

So into May with spring sliding into summer. We started off with another mainly gyp wedding at the elegant Buxted Park Hotel: Fish bowls with gyp posies on the tables:
And the bride had a mixed bouquet with roses,phlox, lisianthus, geulda rose...
We were then delivering to the delightful Finchcocks Oast where coral & yellow made an appearance. The whole wedding was infact feature on the wonderful Love My Dress blog so do pop over there for full details.
Peonies are always popular and worked perfectly at Scotney Castle and thankfully the weather was perfect for an outside ceremony:

That was a snap shot as there were a couple of other truely spring weddings, one with all mixed tulips and the other in yellows, creams and greens but time to move on to June. The photo's of the Finchcocks wedding are courtesy of Helen Cawte Photography.

Wedding Trends

As I have not done regular posts I thought I would do an over view of our main wedding season, we still have some to go before the year is out. Were there any trends? Well yes in that a number of brides were keen to be hands on so provided their own jam jars, pale blue was popular as were pastels and a more informal or wild feel.The 'antique/vintage' theme still loomed large so there was lots of lace, gyp and dusky pink. Oh, and I nearly forgot - coral! The images below will bear this out. We did have a hand full of weddings early in the season with coral/peach making it's first appearence:
April Weddings How elegant this bride looks
And hows this for a different take on the hanging ball!
A truely spring wedding with ranunculas genister, lisianthus to name a few:

And here is a gyp garland at the lovely Rolvenden Barn:
The Bride had mainly roses

I have realised how long this excerise is going to take me so I will post a month at a time!
